Sprint accelerator welcomes first 10 startups

After a christening Tuesday by Sprint Corp. CEO Dan Hesse, the Sprint Mobile Health Accelerator officially kicked off its program by welcoming its first 10 startup tech companies.

The three-month program, led by Boulder, Colo.-based Techstars, will feature a variety of health technology groups from around the country and one company from Australia. Sprint and the Techstars team filtered through hundreds of applicants from around the world before landing on the 10 companies. The participating companies aim to tackle wellness, chronic illness, animal and other health challenges through such tech solutions as hardware, software platforms, transformative services, big data and mobile applications.
